Today's Blind Items

I realize this one is kind of difficult, but it is too good to not write. The only other interesting thing I heard from last night was that Sam Ronson was being grouchy at a bar. That really isn't blind item worthy. Oh, and she got a beer spilled on her which, needless to say didn't improve her mood.

Anyway, what millionaire NBA All-Star has a shrew for a wife. Last night at the after party for The ESPY's she kept telling anyone who would listen about how she hired an illegal immigrant couple to take care of their house and yard and kids and pays them just $10 an hour total. Remarkably enough the answer isn't Vanessa Bryant. I wish it was.

Mine too. I wouldn't put it past her though.

It's just me! said...

I think this is Shaq's wife Shaunie, which would be hilarious since it was reported a while back that Shaq's cable bill ALONE was in the thousands.

Caroline said...

Ha, you should report this b* to INS the IRS.

BigMama said...

Wow, what a shrew. ( I am trying to limit my more colorful words )

Sean said...

Eva Longwhateverher name is? (sorry, don't watch Desperate Housewives)

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Mine too everyone knows that bitch is an A1 shrew.

la laker derek fisher's wife.

I'm not surprised that there are people who do this. I used to teach at a fancy private school where the parents were proud of how little they were paying their nannies and how to find illegal young immigrants and treat them like virtual slaves. One teacher gave money to a girl who was working for our headmistress for no pay in order to send her home.

chcj4 said...

Those measly $10 per hour is gonna back and haunt the shit out of her sooner or later. That's NOT what you pay the people that take care of your house much less your kids. Hopefully they spit in her food every chance they get! One way or another they r gonna end up paying more, mark my words. Wealthy/celebrities need to be extra careful in who they hire. Being greedy is not the way. Ask Vanessa Bryant!

Stephen said...

Since she was talking about it openly why is this a blind. Just tell us who the cheap bitch is.

faithy said...

Is Jason Kidd re-married?

Girly said...

domestic servitude is one form of human trafficking, especially if she is holding the threat of deportation over their heads.

enty, i know you won't reveal it.
but i just wish i knew so i could help that couple.

McDooks said...

WOW, what lucky kids. THEY alone are not worth more than ten bucks an hour, or should I say FIVE bucks an hour, per person?
What a demented and evil bitch. Nice values she's passing on to said kids. I hope she gets her money's worth and her house and yard go to shit. The kids deserve better than bootleg caretakers.

Katie said...

"The kids deserve better than bootleg caretakers"???

sorry, I guess I am team bootleg caretakers--I say they deserve better than that whole shitty family

Vanessa said...

if they are an illegal immigrant....what do the expect.

Honestly...she was an idiot for hiring the person in the first place.

But to say the person deserve fair wages is just considering when they can't legally work in the country anyway.

ardleigh said...

@ Katie -The kids might not realize
Mom is paying these people slave wages. They might not have grown up knowing or having any concept of working for a living. Some rich kids would be shocked as hell at what minimum wage was and how far it goes.

I think someone should turn Wifey in to IRS. Hope Karma finds her SOON.

Ms Cool said...

I'm going to bypass your denial of Vanessa Bryant and guess Vanessa Bryant.

warmislandsun said...

Do these baller wives get so abused by their husbands that they have to take it out on the hired help? Try counseling, you dumb bitches!

jfranco said...

Eva and Tony don't have any kids.

Karmen said...

Well said, warmislandsun.

I don't care if these people are illegal immigrants. I hope this woman gets what she deserves.

McDooks said...

Katie said...

"The kids deserve better than bootleg caretakers"???

sorry, I guess I am team bootleg caretakers--I say they deserve better than that whole shitty family


Guess I failed to state the obvious. YES they deserve better than the whole fucked up family who will only provide them bootleg caretakers.

zandra said...

Kobe Bryant's wife is very evil, and has been accused of under paying staff, and sued. She's also been accused of striking her staff as well.

She's a mental case, not sure if it's bipolor or has a schizo affective disorder but I am so happy that Kobe has that bitch stuck to him. For a while she wasn't left alone with her kids because of her outbursts.

GoddessNow said...

Count Dracula...aka Mrs. Kobe Bryant. This sounds like her, really.

Katie said...

Vanessa said...
if they are an illegal immigrant....what do the expect.


They don't "expect" anything. Which is why they put up with this bs. I would "expect" you to be apalled by it though.

chcj4 said...

Breaking news on the 5 o'clock news
Caretakers go postal on greedy millionaires. Caretakers force greedy couple to eat their own feces.
Karma is a bitch!

Jess[ie] said...

i dunno if he still plays/was at the espy's but doug christie's wife is a total maniac. she's driven people to mental hospitals

TinselSass said...

RE: Girly:

Totally right.

domestic servitude is one form of human trafficking, especially if she is holding the threat of deportation over their heads.

Enty, in my alternative reality world, you or someone else at the party would tip off the Feds.

PJ Nelson said...

My sister is an IRS auditor if that makes a difference. Anyone can call their hotline as an anonymous source and rat the bitch out... even you, Ent...

Vanessa said...

katie....

I'm appalled that the person hired an illegal immigrant...knowing it is wrong.

Appalled by what...that they actually managed to get a job in this country and was willing to work for lower wages than a u.s. citizen.....depressing the wages for everyone in that field.

Nope.

Both the maid and the hoebag should be arrested...one sent to jail the other should be deported.

I don't get why people think the Maid should be entitled to more money....she isn't entitled to anything since she doesn't have her papers.

I also don't think it is Vanessa Bryant...she's a bitch but that is b/c she has a philandering husband ( possible rapist)....and she is constantly fighting off groupies.

Jamie's Girl said...

Don't even say this is Eva Longoria. That is not cool. Vanessa Bryant was solely my guess.

Sara said...

Hmm. Maybe Dwyane Wade's wife?

The Dude Abides said...

D-Fish has never been an All-Star, so it's not his wife. Since the ESPYs are in LA, for the subject to be brought up by this woman so often, odds are it would have to be the wife of an All-Star who doesn't play in LA but who would have a reason to be at the ESPYs. Melo's significant other LaLa Vasquez has been his fiancee for years, not his wife. So, it's down to Dwyane Wade's wife and Shaq's wife. Could be either one.

Char said...

Steve Nash's wife is meant to be a total shrew... is he an all-star this year? I would not put this past her at all.

Babs said...

Vanessa - not a popular opinion on this site, but I agree with you. The reason illegals keep coming here is because people keep hiring them (which is illegal by the way, folks). If we'd stop hiring people who are breaking the law, and start prosecuting those who hire illegals knowingly, perhaps entering the country illegally wouldn't be so attractive.

Yes, $10 an hour is appalling, but it was their choice to come to this country and work for those wages.

And don't get me started on medical benefits, etc., for illegals. Pretty soon my taxes will be more than my take home pay.

Glenn said...

UUhhhh... Spud Webb?? Mookie Blaylock? Pee wee Herman??

Christina Penn said...

Enty, why make this a BI when said wife "kept telling anyone who would listen" about this situation? It seems to me this woman is virtually begging for the wider world to know. So give her what she wants!

At the very least, Enty, you should tip off the IRS and SSA.

Pookie said...

*standing ovation for Katie*

*APPLAUSE APPLAUSE*

Marina Ortiz said...

Why is everyone just hating on the wife? The "all-star" husband is clearly footing the bill so isn't he culpable too? Or, should we only be concerned about her bragging?

Phoebs said...

I don't know if Shaq reconciled since, but they did put out a statement of a divorce a while back.

This may be something different, but what about LeBron James? He would've been there, right?

Marina Ortiz said...

While we're on the (off) subject of illegal immigration, do none of you even bother to ask about the devastation (rape and pillage) of emerging (third world) nation economies caused by the privatization of natural resources and labor on the part of "foreign" (U.S. corporate) interests? Doesn't it bother you that some folks can't access water in their own backyards because "Nestle" has bought up all the rights in their own country so the corporation can bring us "the very best" (including slave labor). What a bunch of self-entitled brats we Americans are!

lyz said...

I don't think that paying the couple $10/hour is justified simply b/c they are illegal immigrants.

The fact is, illegal or not, these parents hired this couple to manage their home and kids, which is a huge responsibility and lots of work. As such, they should be paid accordingly.

Two wrongs don't make a right.

Hiring them is illegal. Taking advantage of them is disgraceful.

Katie said...

Vanessa and Babs--it's not about taking a popular or unpopular side, it's about looking at both sides and treating humans like humans and not dogs.

I really don't want to get into a huge debate about this, but illigal immigrants are not to blame for depressed wages and high taxes. If you believe that bullshit, then maybe you should think about how many illigal immigrants are paying into the social security system and will never receive a dime of that money back. Hmm, never thought about that one?

Anyway, besides the fact that if you were in the illigal immigrant's position, you would probably be doing the same thing, I don't think that immigrants feel "entitled" to anything. You made that point a couple of times and if that were true, then the would be sitting on their asses waiting for what is coming to them, not working for $5/hour.

Karmen said...

"My sister is an IRS auditor if that makes a difference. Anyone can call their hotline as an anonymous source and rat the bitch out... even you, Ent..."

The person who heard it firsthand should report it, too.

Mary Stewart-McGovern said...

Phoebs, LeBron isn't married to his baby mamma.

I'm still thinking Shaq's wife, and wondering how she'll enjoy being here in Cleveland. *heh, heh*

Yarn or Death said...

I doubt it's Dwyane Wade's wife, as they're in the middle of a nasty divorce complete with STD allegations.

Vanessa said...

Marina Ortiz

No...b/c that has nothing to do with the story nor can we assume that has anything to do with the story.

I am happy that you admit that you are selfish...since you don't know me or my situation....don't try to lump me in your situation.

Katie...if you really don't want to get into a debate about it...than why are you still talking about it and trying to convince them that it is totally okay.
The couple was wrong to hire the girl..illegal...they should be arrested.

The girl was wrong to enter this country illegal and get wages that should go to a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident. She should get deported.

How do they pay into social security...if she doesn't have her papers....
Let's be for real...and not deal with the wishful thinking....she was paid under the table.
Good...they shouldn't get a dime from social security b/c they aren't working here legally. You brake the law...that is what happens to you.

I wonder how they could pay in social security....if they don't have a social security to their name....oh wait they could have a fake one.

I didn't say anything about high taxes...but they are totally to be blamed for depressed wages since they are willing to work for less money than their american counterpart.

Jade, That Girl said...

going with Shaunie, which is really sad since I loved the fact that she had hidden undisclosed millions from Shaq during their first divorce proceedings.

it also makes me think this is her, since she is obviously money saavy...

this is also just really really really cold.

amanda rae said...

marina ortiz-

If you think the US sucks so bad and is an "oppressor nation" to third-world hellholes, then by all means please go live in one of those hellholes and stop reaping the benefits of this society. If it bothers you so damn much, then why are you here? I can tell you that it doesn't bother me ONE DAMN BIT, oh boo freaking hoo for them...not my problem.

Quite frankly, I don't give a damn about the plight of people in third-world countries when we have needy and desperate people right here in our own backyards, so forgive me for giving a shit about the poor and impoverished here in my own country, instead of people who live thousands of miles away in a country I'd never even want to visit. I am an AMERICAN, and I am proud and eternally grateful to have been born in the absolute best country on Earth, and I will never apologize for that, nor will I fake sadness and empathy when I feel none. You don't like your lot in life? Then change it, don't fucking whine about how big and bad the evil US is. Either fix your shit or STFU.

I cannot feel bad for these illegals, since they are CRIMINALS for even being here and they should be arrested and deported, along with the millions of other illegals. Having had to live around them when I was in Arlington VA, I can say that about 98% of them are criminals that refuse to assimilate, learn the language, and who don't even like the US. They WILL turn this great country into the shitholes they left, if we let them, so I say deport them all and good riddance. America for AMERICANS and LEGAL immigrants only. NINGUNA AMNESTIA, PUTAS!

amanda rae said...

Katie-

Just a little FYI...illegal immigrants cost this country at least $30 BILLION dollars a year in social services, etc., so I don't see how they aren't getting benefits. They get to walk into the ER and get treatment for free, they get hundreds of dollars in food stamps (I have seen that with my own eyes on many occasions), their kids get free lunches, and on and on and on. They get stuff that AMERICANS who pay into the system cannot get, but we're supposed to feel bad that they don't get social security? When they're costing us billions a year? HAHAHA NO.

For some realtalk on the cost of illegal immigration to you, me and the nation, check out this site:

www.immigrationshumancost.org

Then once you have the facts, try and tell me that illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay and that they aren't a HUGE detriment and burden to the American citizens/taxpayers.

OK, stepping off my soapbox now...
